Spo-Reflections had a record month of over 30,000 visitors !!
It sees 350,000 visitors by year’s end.
Most people get festive on New Years’ Eve. I tend to get thoughtful and reflective. On the plane ride home I reread this year’s journal. I recalled what happened this year.
Each year’s diary conveys a general theme and emotion.
At the conclusion of reading 2009’s journal, there is a sense of neutrality. 2009 had some pleasant times; it had some sad ones too. 2009 was a copacetic year.
The year seemed a bit dull, without great growth or revelations. The year ends with a ‘hmmm’ rather than a ‘wow’ or a ‘phew’.
The year went by quickly. Some of this is the process of aging. In 2009, Someone and I both showed signs of growing older. There is paradox to neutrality; when nothing happens, time flies.
It reminds me of the following quote from Graham Greene-
“The Accumulation of Memory!
A man without memories may live to be 100 yet feel like his life had been but a brief one”
So where does this put me for 2010? I won’t try to make 2010 particularly ‘anything’.
I will let it be and see what happens.
This Zen approach sounds right.
